SULAIMANI – Spokesperson for Raparin Police Directorate Shorsh Ismail said on Sunday (April 25) that a person was killed in an armed skirmish in Chwarqurna sub-district as homicide is on the rise in the Kurdistan Region.

Ismail said that the victim was killed due to a social problem, a term used by the authorities to domestic violence and non-party or non-terrorism issues.

The body was sent to the forensic department in the town, he added. 

On Saturday night, a 30-year-old mother of three children was killed in Sheikhan district in Nineveh province. 

There has been a rise in murders, more notably through gunshots, across the Kurdistan Region.

On February 10, 2019, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Ministry of Interior gave gun owners six months to log their unregistered or illicit small firearms and called on people to hand over their medium and heavy weaponry.
